Ebtihaj
Ebtihaj, 27 years old and a single lady, lives with her mother and sister after their father passed away. Her only brother is married and helps in supporting the family as much as he can.

Ebtihaj feels that getting support from her brother is a lot to ask of him as he has his own family to look after, so she has recently started a small business at home selling clothes and blankets. Now Ebtihaj is applying for a youth loan to bring in more clothing items to increase her revenue.

About National Microfinance Bank

Jordan is a small country located in the heart of the Middle East’s Levant region. Regional instability has caused Jordan to be excluded from global investments for decades. Additionally, a lack of natural resources—including water and energy—places tremendous strain on the Jordanian economy, over 80% of which consists of small businesses, largely in the service industry. Despite their importance in the economy, many of these businesses are excluded from the banking sector because of their size. Microfinance institutions like National Microfinance Bank offer them an opportunity to enhance and expand their businesses. NMB also offers its services to other underprivileged peoples in Jordan, providing them with loans to pursue educational goals and improve their homes and livelihoods.
